Session: “Structure Design to Reduce Flood Damage” by William Coulbourne PE

Description: The webinar will cover the basic requirements for flood design using ASCE 7-16 and ASCE 24-14. There will be discussion of how to determine the Design Flood Elevation (DFE) and how to use the flood depth determined by the DFE to calculate flood loads on a structure. The connection between these two documents and the building code will be discussed, as well as the most important elements of ASCE 24 as they relate to residential and commercial construction. A discussion of how to include future conditions into a flood design will also be covered briefly because of the importance of this topic.
